Have you added Forever Never to your TBR yet? I read an early copy and in my humble opinion, it’s Lucy’s best book yet. It’s full of longing, romance, suspense, and a steam factor of eleventy billion. Releasing March 4!

You don’t fall for your brother’s high school sweetheart, your boss’s daughter, or your ex-wife’s best friend. Especially when they’re all the same woman.

Under Brick Callan’s mile-wide chest beat a loyal heart with a few cracks in it. He’s the steadfast, overprotective type. Especially when it comes to the one woman he can never have. It’s a long, complicated history punctuated by fights, friendship, family, and an attraction that strains his iron willpower.

When Remi Ford returns to Mackinac Island in the dead of winter with a secret, Brick makes it his mission to find out what put the shadows in those green eyes. Even if it means breaking down the walls he’s built between them. Even if it means falling for the one girl he’ll never get over.

The free-spirited artist just needs to lay low for a few weeks so she can figure a way out of this nightmare. She’s definitely not staying. Not when the man who broke her teenage heart into splinters keeps showing up at her parents’ dinner table. She doesn’t need broody, bearded Brick riding to her rescue…again. Not when it will put them both in danger, costing them much more than their hearts this time.

Frenemies-to-lovers. Opposites attract. Slow burn. Heroine in danger. Glorious, glorious banter. Fighting as foreplay. Small-town shenanigans. Big, grumpy, pining, overprotective hero. Wild-child, trouble-finding heroine who keeps pushing the hero’s buttons. Steam Level: Lava. Suspense: Nail-biting. Feels: Big time.

I feel confident in saying that the audio for Riley Thorn and the Dead Guy Next Door will be coming to you soonish! I am 80% done with the audio proof and Natalie Duke is such a pro there are going to be hardly any revisions, which means it’s be coming to your ears sooner rather than later!

There is still no update on the final two Bootleg series audiobooks. They are being recorded by Natalie Duke and Stephen Dexter, Team Lucy is still waiting for the audio files from them. We’ll let you know as soon as we have them!

I cannot tell you how excited I am for Lucy’s work in progress to hit the charts! There’s no release date or title, the book isn’t even finished yet. But when Lucy is so excited about a project, I know it’s going to be an epic book! One evening back in August Tammy Becky, Lucy, and I named characters plotted tropes and conflicts, and it was the most fun ever! That’s how Brick and Remi were named, just spitballing over messenger to see what stuck! Here’s a peek at a behind-the-scenes screenshot!

Oh, like I’m going to show you any spoilers.

The horse’s name is Cleetus

The snow fell harder now. Fat flakes floating from the sky blotting out the horizon as Cleetus picked his way down the path.

“I swear to Christ, if you ever leave your house without your inhaler again, I’m going to lock you up.”

“If my recollection serves, I didn’t call you. This isn’t your problem.”

Brick hated to admit it, but it rankled that she hadn’t called him this time. That she hadn’t come to him for help.

“You didn’t call, but I came anyway. That’s the way this works. You will always be my problem.”

For some goddamn ridiculous female reason, his pissed off answer had her relaxing against him. He could spend a lifetime studying Remi and knew she still wouldn’t make any damn sense to him. The bigger problem was that with her new relaxed position his thumb wasn’t just brushing her breast, it was pinned under it.

“You couldn’t throw on a bra and put your inhaler in your coat, could you?” he muttered.

He winced when she shifted against him. She had to feel how fucking hard he was for her with his cock wedged up against her ass like that. Every rock of the saddle was a new level of hell for him.

“No one told you to put your damn hand up my shirt,” she reminded him. She sounded better, brighter, perkier.

“I don’t hear you asking me to remove it,” he shot back.

“I didn’t ask you to remove your hard-on from my ass either. I’m too polite.”

“Jesus, Remi.”

Lucy’s Heart of Hope was originally published as a part of Melanie Shawn’s Hope Falls Kindle World. It’s a wonderfully emotional Christmas story about HOPE! It’s inspiring and so heartwarming I puddle up just thinking about it. Have your tissues ready for this one!

“Just because I don’t run around with a stupid grin on my face all day every day doesn’t mean I’m grumpy.”

Ryan Sosa, grumpy former corporate accountant, has had it up to here with surprises. He didn’t see getting fired coming. And he certainly didn’t anticipate flying across the country to the world’s hippie-est, happiest, most annoying town to save his great-uncle from some mysterious emergency.

Not only is there actual snow on the ground, it also appears that elves on psychedelics have decked Blue Moon’s halls. But he doesn’t have time to be snarky about the impending Winter Solstice and Multicultural Holiday Celebration—whatever the hell that is. Not when he’s got a farm to save, a free-range sheep that he may or may not have nudged with his stupid microscopic rental car, and some small-town veterinarian telling him she can’t take the animal off his hands.

Dr. Sammy Ames has a practice to manage and a fundraising crisis to attend to. She doesn’t have time to deal with a big-city grouch who doesn’t remember being her first kiss ever. Especially not since he wants to dump a sheep named Stan on her. So not happening. No matter how cute—and pantless—Ryan is when he’s drunk.

Besides, as soon as he solves his uncle’s problem, he’ll be on the first flight out of Blue Moon, never to return again.
It will take a Winter Solstice Miracle or perhaps some matchmaking interference from the Beautification Committee to get these two to see eye-to-eye under the mistletoe…unless he’s the wrong Ryan after all.

Here’s the teensiest little snippet of the Blue Moon fun you’re about to find yourself in the midst of…

That was exactly what Dr. Sammy Ames was looking for. A small-town good guy who threw flour during completely unrealistic cookie baking fights. Growly and grumpy would never be the star of one of those stories. Besides, Ryan was too practical to throw flour. It took forever to clean up.
